The Washington Post’s Ann Hornaday wrote that Egerton “exerts a steadying, singularly charismatic force” in the role, while Vanity Fair’s Richard Lawson described it as “nuanced and emotionally intelligent while still loose, carried with verve and agility.”

He lands a 61m jump exactly while practicing for the final event before the qualification cutoff date, but misses the mark on his official jump and is disqualified.
